Bayern Munich star Philipp Lahm has invited the club to offer him a new deal to extend his stay at the club.
Lahm's current contract expires in 2012 and the German international admits he would be happy to sign a long-term extension.
The 26-year-old is waiting on the club's board to open talks as he looks to secure his long-term future at the German giants.
"It is looking very good at the moment. I am waiting on the board to make their move, for someone to approach me," Lahm told TZ.
"I want to see that things are moving forward so that the club can progress. And I realise that they are."
Bayern's sporting director, Christian Nerlinger, admits they are keen to keep Lahm and team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger for the rest of their careers.
"We will do everything we can to keep them - preferably for their entire careers," noted Nerlinger.
Meanwhile, Bayern striker Miroslav Klose faces a new spell on the sidelines after suffering a recurrence of a thigh problem.
Klose had only recently returned to training after two weeks out with a thigh injury, but he suffered a new injury while training with the club's reserves on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old is expected to be ruled out for up to three weeks to add to Bayern's injury problems with Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery, Mark van Bommel and Diego Contento all currently on the sidelines.
"He was again diagnosed with a muscle injury in his left thigh, just as he had recovered from the injury in the same thigh," the club said in a statement.
